The Core Plate Carrier intends to blend both durability and high-speed performance in an affordable package. It features both traditional MOLLE webbing and Velcro-covered laser-cut MOLLE sections for all of your plate carrier-mounted gear. The outside and inside of the cummerbund also feature traditional MOLLY webbing so that you can add gear to either side.
Another unique feature of the Core Plate Carrier is that it comes pre-equipped with a pair of Level IIIA cummerbund inserts which slide in between the MOLLE webbing sections. The carrier includes FirstSper Rapid-Release Technology for easily and securely strapping the cummerbund to the front of the carrier.

The plate carrier includes a 5-year warranty for the cummerbund armor and a 2-year warranty on the plate carrier which includes incident replacement.
